“Someone Worth Dying For”
Mikeschair’s Lead Vocalist Mike Grayson
Mike Dunn’s guest on “Quest for Character” was Mikechair’s Lead Vocalist Mike Grayson.
The sound of MIKESCHAIR demands attention. The strong delivery of their self-titled album on CURB Records sets out to entertain as well as inspire those who listen. Their unique pop sound mixed with rock guitars, electronic textures, and bass grooves blended with catchy, anthemic, sing-along choruses compel you to step up emotionally and spiritually. The music inspires action to change the world through love.
Not only does the sound demand attention, but so do the remarkable individuals of the four-man outfit that make up MIKESCHAIR. Mike Grayson first found his passion for music while in sixth grade and continued to grow this passion throughout high school. He tied together this love of music with his faith as a youth worship leader in his church. Sam Tinnesz has dreamed of music his whole life. Through self-discipline and practice, he developed his skills on guitar, leading him to perform with many rock bands over the years before finding a home with MIKESCHAIR. Jesse Hale began classical violin training at four-years-old and has maintained his enthusiasm for music ever since. Using his welltrained ear, he’s been able to pick up several other instruments including keys, synths and programming – thereby becoming the band’s “utility guy”. Jon Haire picked up his first bass in seventh grade and hasn’t put it down ever since. His desire to mix his aspirations for music and performance has proven to be an essential element to the makeup of MIKESCHAIR.
A Beautiful Life is a vibrant collection of songs that uplift and inspire while truthfully acknowledging the difficulties along life’s journey. “You Loved Me First” reminds us of the love of Jesus. “You gave your life to prove to me what I was worth,” sings Grayson in the compelling tune. The first single, “Someone Worth Dying For,” also serves to affirm each person’s value in the kingdom of God.
